This is an important time for the vaping industry with the recent news about American vapers’ lung illness and deaths. The cause of this illness has been identified as illegal black market THC vaping cartridges which likely contained the additive Vitamin E Acetate. The CDC has not stated that the illnesses were caused by vaping nicotine and has confirmed: “Deaths linked to vaping often involved THC products, not nicotine”.

After careful research, the U.K. government continues to promote vaping as a recommended tool for Tobacco harm reduction. Positive information about vaping from the U.K. continues, including the news story that ‘E-cigarettes helped more than 50,000 people in England quit smoking in one year.’
In order to help promote vaping awareness Innokin ran a bus advocacy campaign on 500 buses across London. We are proud to financially support and promote important vape advocacy groups from around the world and share the message from Public Health England that vaping is ‘95% less harmful than smoking.’ The work of UKVIA, VTA, CVA, CASAA and others helps to share vital information and their efforts are greatly needed and appreciated.

The health and well-being of smokers and vapers is our mission at Innokin and we have watched the development of this situation carefully. Our products are tested and certified according to TPD standards and we continue to research and develop next generation products and advanced vaping technologies.
